I asked SG if she had any pictures from the Halloween party from last year. She is the keeper o' the pictures.

Meanwhile my sister has a plan to keep my mom from voting. She is going to take her to lunch and then shopping. That is real dedication.

Well, Cap'n, the first post on this excellent "World's Worst" AAR was posted in January 2010. Very nearly 3 years ago! Hard to imagine...

I'm sure that your AAR will take more than another year to finish, perhaps as many as 7 years in total at this pace. In any case, I wanted to thank you for your contributions to our sanity by wishing you another "Four more years!" of happy returns.

All together now:

Four more years!
Four more years!
Four more years!






I'll just leave quietly then shall I?

Nonsense! It wouldn't be the World's Worst AAR without you, Lord Admiral.

Here's a little something to kindle your memory. How to get in touch with your inner submariner:

1. Buy a steel dumpster, paint it gray inside and out, and live in it for six months.
2. Run all the pipes and wires in your house exposed on the walls.
3. Repaint your entire house every month.
4. Renovate your bathroom. Build a wall across the middle of the bathtub and move the shower head to chest level. When you take showers, make sure you turn off the water while you soap down.
5. Put lube oil in your humidifier and set it on high.
6. Once a week, blow compressed air up your chimney, making sure the wind carries the soot onto your neighbor’s house. Ignore his complaints.
7. Once a month, take all major appliances apart and then reassemble them.
8. Raise the thresholds and lower the headers of your front and back door so that you either trip or bang your head every time you pass through them.
9. Disassemble and inspect your lawnmower every week.
10. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, turn your water heater temperature up to 200 degrees. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, turn the water heater off. On Saturdays and Sundays tell your family they use too much water during the week, so no bathing will be allowed.
11. Raise your bed to within 6” of the ceiling, so you can’t turn over without getting out and then getting back in.
12. Sleep on the shelf in your closet. Replace the closet door with a curtain. Have your spouse whip open the curtain about 3 hours after you go to sleep, shine a flashlight in your eyes, and say “Sorry, wrong rack.”
13. Make your family qualify to operate each appliance in your house -dishwasher operator, blender technician, etc.
14. Have your neighbor come over each day at 0500, blow a whistle so loud Helen Keller could hear it, and shout “Reveille, reveille, all hands heave out and trice up.”
15. Have your mother-in-law write down everything she’s going to do the following day, then have her make you stand in your back yard at 0600 while she reads it to you.
16. Submit a request chit to your father-in-law requesting permission to leave your house before 1500.
17. Empty all the garbage bins in your house and sweep the driveway three times a day, whether it needs it or not.
18. Have your neighbor collect all your mail for a month, read your magazines, and randomly lose every 5th item before delivering it to you.
19. Watch no TV except for movies played in the middle of the night. Have your family vote on which movie to watch, then show a different one.
20. When your children are in bed, run into their room with a megaphone shouting that your home is under attack and ordering them to their battle stations. (Now general quarters, general quarters, all hands man your battle stations.)
21. Make your family menu a week ahead of time without consulting the pantry or refrigerator.
22. Post a menu on the kitchen door informing your family that they are having steak for dinner. Then make them wait in line for an hour. When they finally get to the kitchen, tell them you are out of steak, but they can have dried ham or hot dogs. Repeat daily until they ignore the menu and just ask for hot dogs.
23. Bake a cake . Prop up one side of the pan so the cake bakes unevenly. Spread icing real thick to level it off.
24. Get up every night around midnight and have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on stale bread. (midrats)
25. Set your alarm clock to go off at random during the night. At the alarm, jump up and dress as fast as you can, making sure to button your top shirt button and tuck your pants into your socks. Run out into the backyard and uncoil the garden hose.
26. Every week or so, throw your cat or dog in the pool and shout “Man overboard port side!” Rate your family members on how fast they respond.
27. Put the headphones from your stereo on your head, but don’t plug them in. Hang a paper cup around your neck on a string. Stand in front of the stove, and speak into the paper cup “Stove manned and ready.” After an hour or so, speak into the cup again “Stove secured.” Roll up the headphones and paper cup and stow them in a shoebox.
28. Place a podium at the end of your driveway. Have your family stand watches at the podium, rotating at 4 hour intervals. This is best done when the weather is worst. January is a good time.
29. When there is a thunderstorm in your area, get a wobbly rocking chair, sit in it and rock as hard as you can until you become nauseous. Make sure to have a supply of stale crackers in your shirt pocket.
30. For former engineers: bring your lawn mower into the living room, and run it all day long.
31. Make coffee using eighteen scoops of budget priced coffee grounds per pot, and allow the pot to simmer for 5 hours before drinking.
32. Have someone under the age of ten give you a haircut with sheep shears.
33. Sew the back pockets of your jeans on the front.
34. Lock yourself and your family in the house for six weeks. Tell them that at the end of the 6th week you are going to take them to Disney World for “liberty.” At the end of the 6th week, inform them the trip to Disney World has been canceled because they need to get ready for an inspection, and it will be another week before they can leave the house.
35. Invite your neighbors over and given them directions to get to different parts of your home referring only to Bulkheads, Overheads, Decks, Ladder-ways, Hatches.

**************Pranning**************


Feb 18 and Yorktown is about 40 days from readiness at Sydney....plus about 10 days to get to the battle area if she goes the long way around Oz. That means Victorious can be in Colombo, plus at least one repaired R-class RN BB, one USN prewar BB and Repulse and PoW and two fast USN BB's. 3 divisions (2 Aus, 1 Br) plus an infantry brigade will be ready.

That makes 3 carriers plus a stong surface group and a bombardment group and perhaps abpout 4 CVE's..but it would have to be early April...third week if we wait for the APA's.

It seems that the damage to Yorktown has not set back pranning.


We need to keep something in South Pac to have a credible diversionary attack on the Marshalls.

See...now here is what I don't get. What is the point of "Chogey" or "Chogi"?

It isn't really shorter than the word it replaces. It doesn't seem historical or even particularly insulting. The only purpose seems to obfuscate.......oh....wait....NOW I get it.

Dear Sir,

I am glad to hear that your studio audience disapproves of the last skit as strongly as I. As a naval officer I abhor the implication that the Royal Navy is a haven for cannibalism. It is well known that we now have the problem relatively under control, and that it is the RAF who now suffer the largest casualties in this area. And what do you think the Argylls ate in Aden. Arabs?

Yours etc.,

If you equate humans with other animals, yes. Based on the current election results sheep would seem to be a reasonable approximation.

Politically indoctrinated 11 year old: Mom, you shouldn't vote for Romney. My teacher told us he wants to take from the poor.

SG: <steam coming out of ears> Captain! Get in here and explain it to her!

FAM: Well, sweetheart, you have to consider that your teacher may have a hidden motive for telling you guys that.......<discussion of public union pensions and the stimulus package and involuntary diversion of union dues to support the machine ensues....it is a complete failure. She looks at speaker like he is from Mars....speaker decides to try a more concrete analogy>

Well, look sweetheart, you know you spent time getting all dressed up and then spent two hours going door to door on Halloween and got all that cool candy?

Politically indoctrinated 11 year old: YEAH! I got 4 full sized Snickers!

FAM: FANTASTIC! And you should be proud of your work! Now imagine that the kid next door doesn't even get dressed up or go out trick or treating but when you get home, the President GIVES half your candy to the kid next door!

Politically indoctrinated 11 year old: THAT'S NOT FAIR!

******************Observations, Feb. 19, 1943(c)********************


Oil: No doubt about it now. JJ is picking up oil from the Eastern Borneo ports. Tankers are skittering Northward along both sides of Mindanao. JJ has sustained considerable losses in this effort, both from subs, which can now be vectored in from air sightings and from the group that strayed within SBD range of Ternate. What is wrong with Palembang or Northern Borneo? Perhaps they want to get out what they can.

Targets: JJ is reinforcing (I assume) Palau. Not a bad move. It would a very valuable asset, but no way to take a considerable force there without getting it killed unitl the Essex class carriers start arriving or the carriers come back from the Sumatra landing. I have ordered a recon B-24 squadron to take some pics of Djangas in SW Mindanao today. One of the dot bases in the Celebes Sea turned green so I ordered some landing craft under a Lt Jg to take some Sea Bees there to start building a strip. 503rd PIR assembling at Ternate for another drop in the Celebes Sea...well technically, we hope to hit one of the islands.

Sulawese: The strip at Sidate is at 68% readiness and buidling fast. Avaition support tlanding there today. When we have top cover, 2 USMC Regts will embark via amphibious group and land there. They are prepped 100% for Manado adn will march in.

Northern Oz: A Jap ground unit is marching on Derby from Broome. We have a USMC Regt at Derby plus some aviation spport. An Aussie reserve infantry brigade is 2 or 3 days down the trail to the SE. Oops. Didn't think they would try this. Forts are at zero. We have been building up the airfield. Flew in some B-26's to attack the approaching LYB's and the B-24's from Darwin will join in.
